College question; auditing and sitting in. please help.?0ronnew2012-11-05 21:56:02
I'm in a two-year college program right now (for free!) at my local university, for people with learning disabilities, and I'm going into my second year. I really love college, the school has become like home to me, and I plan to apply to be a regular college student next year. The thing is, I truly do want to go; at least for my last two years after I leave the program, not for my career (I don't need a degree for the career I want) but just for the experience and since I'd feel weird leaving college at a four-year school after just two years. I don't think I can afford to earn an official degree right now, though, and I really want to avoid getting into debt that's going to take forever to pay back; especially in this recession and since I'd probably major in psychology or something like that which there are most likely even less job options for out there at this point. So I wondered, since just auditing classes would still require me to pay for them in my uni, would it be okay to audit and ask the professors to sit in on the classes? Would most professors allow it as long as there was room for me in them? I'd mostly be taking upper-level, smaller classes if that helps, as long as it all works out. Since I took mostly intro classes this past year, and I'm taking slightly more advanced classes next year; just the basics to break the college life in, my goal for the next two years would be to go to classes related to what my major would be. Then afterward, I can tell employers that I didn't get a degree but did go to college and finished what I started, was a dedicated student and worked hard. Later, when I've worked for a few years and can afford it (I plan to get a part-time job as well and hopefully do some volunteering since I love helping people out), if I want to get a degree I can always go back. Right now, I think this would be the best thing for me though, as long as it would be okay. I don't mean any disrespect toward the professors or the school, and I don't want to break any rules or laws, I just really want the rest of the experience in college and to finish serving my purpose there...so I thought I'd check on it first to make sure. Would it be okay to just ask to sit in as an audit student? Will most professors allow it? Sorry this is kind of long, I've just seriously considered this option, and I want to know if it's good before I talk to my parents about it. I've sort of been stressing over it a lot too.... Any feedback or other helpful advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys! :) Sam ♥[View Answers]
Is this guy serious? HA!?0Shaun102012-11-05 21:38:02
Hi everyone! Just curious on your opinions: I met a guy through a mutual friend back in July and we were two peas in a pod! We dated all the way up until Thanksgiving when he decided to dump me. I am 22, working 30 hours a week, senior in college in an honors program and thesis project, I help out with psychology research in university labs, and I am applying to law schools at the moment...my point is, I'm pretty independent and away from home now, trying to get my life together. On the other hand, he is in his late twenties, only graduated from high school, works an hourly wage part-time at a golf club, and is in a dead end band (= no money)...oh, and he still lives with his parents. I fell in love with him only to be dumped and left dumbfounded. But the more I think about it, he is stuck in high school-in his mind (the glory days)...he has no responsibilities at home and his parents have to tell him to clean his room and wash the dishes...and they feed him and let him continue to live there on their dime for the most part. He cuts their grass for an "allowance" too...The only reasons that I stayed with him and looked over those points is because I really loved him and we had a lot in common...also, because I figured that I was four years younger than him and still pretty young anyways and shouldn't judge. However, the more I think about it the more I realize that he would never have signed up to take a class at the community college had I not come into the picture (his friend even told me this after the breakup, that I inspired him to do so)! He wasn't the sharpest knife in the drawer back in high school from what I've been told, but he seemed motivated and his parents were actually starting to feel proud of his son for having some kind of motivation to get his **** together! Anyways, he started introducing me to his friends, took me to weddings of his friends from high school, and it was like he felt peer pressure to enroll in school and tell his friends from high school that he wanted to make something of himself and be a teacher...I was very encouraging once he announced this to everyone, however, I never told him beforehand or pressured him to go back to school...he did that on his own. I feel like he was just doing this to keep up in the social circle with his high school friends (who are now mostly married and live on their own and have steady lives and incomes with families). I think he felt pressure with me around because I was actually trying to get somewhere with my life and I was making him look bad (I guess?) Anyways, the last relationship he was in lasted for over two years and the girl he was with was a few years older than him, but an alcoholic and partier (just like him-all though, he drinks he never really had much when he dated me because he knew I wasn't a drinker/partier and my dad was a recovering alcoholic)...Also, he looked liked the responsible one in that relationship so I think that's why he stayed with her for so long, even though he got so sick of her jealosy and nagging (as he has told me). Anyways, they dated, were broken up but on the rocks/friends with benefits up until I met him through a mutual friend, when he finally got sick of her antics of getting drunk at her job, jealousy, etc the same week we met and told her they were done with everything. However, I think they were meant for each other! Haha, they both liked to party and drink at these thrasher punk shows he played at and they are both insecure and have to be in the social circle and party to feel important...When we were dating, I think he was trying to turn some of that craziness off for me because he knew I wasn't really a punk rocker partier/drinker, I don't think he was being himself around me and I guess he got sick of it. We were doing really great up until the part where reality started to sink in that I actually had responsibilities and we could only see each other on the weekends if anything...we lived an hour away from each other. Oh summer love, you suck bite and blow...in that order! Hahaha A good analogy I have to describe us would be something like I am to the band Rush as he is to the band ...well, I guess his "band" hahaha[View Answers]
Do I have a snowball's chance in hell of getting into graduate school?0Adeline2012-11-05 21:28:02
I'm getting ready to graduate with honors with a bachelor in psychology...my GPA is 3.6. I Have clinical experience working for a suicide prevention hotline, a local hospital's psych ward, and a local retirement home. I have also served as a teaching assistant, and have given lectures in college classes. I really want to get into a master's program for clinical psychology....but I just took the GRE today and my score was absolute crap: 980 (550 verbal, 430 quantitative) I feel like my GPA and other qualifications make me a great applicant for a master's program, but my GRE scores are pathetic. I am naturally horrible at math, and worry that even if I somehow find time to study amongst working, being a teaching assistant for two different professors, and taking my own classes, I still may not do any better than I did today. I'm starting to feel really depressed about this....I don't have another $160 to throw away again (that's how much it costs to take the test). Do you think that I still have a chance at getting accepted anywhere?[View Answers]
Do I have a shot at entering the Honors Program?0Matteo2012-11-05 15:09:02
The average GPA for students admitted to the program was a 3.5 The average SAT score for students admitted was 1170 (including only math and reading) My GPA is somewhere between 3.0 and 3.5 idk exactly what yet. My SAT scores haven't come back yet but I'm almost certain I did better than 1170. I know I made at least a 500 on math and no less than a 650 on reading. My GPA is so low because I transferred schools and certain grades didn't transfer over, so I had to do one at summer school and ended up with the lowest passing grade possible for one class, whereas the other I just sucked at, and I have yet to receive grades for English 1 and Physical Science. I made an agreement with my headmaster to work those off in the afternoons as college credits via dual enrollment. My average grades for the past 3 years have been a 93, 92 and 96 respectvely. I'm taking a pretty rigorous course load this year, with AP Physics, AP Calculus and AP Government/Economics. I also have more than twice the required amount of electives, including British Literature, Religious Studies, and Comprehensive Vocabulary electives. I also have 4 science courses when only 3 are required. I also have 4 history/social science courses when only 2 are required. I'm taking dual enrollment college courses: Psychology which I have an 87 in (3.0) Expository Writing which I have a 98 in (4.0) And next semester I'm taking Environmental Biology and Philosophy. I'm also an excellent writer and plan on writing pretty much the bangingest "why do you want to be in the honors program" essay ever. So even though my GPA is a little (ok alot) off, will I still stand a chance, what with all my extra courses in high school and taking college courses after school? It's a very small liberal arts school and is relatively easy to get into (the average GPA for admitteed students was between 2.5 and 3.2) so not alot of people are really gonna be overly qualified for the program, and some I think just won't really care about being in it.[View Answers]
Should I take IB Chem or Anatomy?0Imear2012-11-04 17:12:02
So we're choosing our classes today. I'm doing the IB diploma program, and I have one elective(colorguard) and one IB/academic elective, where i can take IB Psychology, Music, or an extra science. I'm most likely doing an extra science(I'm definitely a math and science person) I also want to be a doctor(either a pediatrician or an ER worker, or maybe just a RN at first, I'm not sure what field yet). So anatomy would probably be good there, but I can't choose between Biology and Chemistry. I'm good at both, and my chemistry teacher recommended I take both. But would anatomy be better for being a doctor? IB Chem is one year and IB Bio is two, so if I take anatomy I'd have to get rid of Chem. And I have to take Theory of Knowledge senior year, so I won't be able to take bio-med after anatomy anyway. By the way, any college recommendations? I'm thinking a UC school but I'm not sure. Thanks![View Answers]
What do elite college look at when they admit students into their program?0Kapomaikai2012-11-03 16:48:31
What do you think elite colleges look at when they admit students into their institution? I'm a California State University,Fullerton (CSUF) graduate with a major in Radio-TV-Film and Psychology.I would say my overall GPA and academic record's not that impressive. I've graduated in the year of 2009 with an overall GPA of 3.12 and major GPA of 2.72 at CSUF and a transfered GPA of 3.52 as a community college student at MiraCosta College. The only thing i can be a little bit impressed about is my written purpose statement,four referal letters;two from college professors,one from a company I used to intern at, and one from my church pastor.I have some extracurricular activities and community service work,including the multicultural workshop,social justice summit,and university leadership award.I've recently applied to the master programs of international journalism and international design and communication management of colleges in UK,which are University of Leeds and University of Warwick and both schools have admitted me and have given me unconditional offers,they do not require GREs.Leeds have acclaimed the top ten universities in UK and ranked #26 in national ranking in Times and has a world ranking of #99,which is above UC Davis,UC Santa Barbara,UC Santa Cruz,UC Merced,UC Riverside,UC Irvine and USC in world ranking in US news and world report.Warwick is even more impressive,acclaimed top ten national funding univesities in UK,and ranked #7 in national ranking in Times,only 5 and 6 ranks below Oxford and Cambridge,Leeds and Warwick are both consider one of the top 20 schools within the russell group,which is equivalent to the American Ivy league. (http:// www.wikipedia.com/russellgroup) Warwick ranked #58 in world ranking,in close tie with NYU and only 19 ranks and 26 ranks below UC Berkeley and UCLA and ranked above UCSD in US news and world report.What do elite college look at when they admit students into their program?[View Answers]
How hard is the RN program?0Debre Rolon2012-11-03 16:39:52
I have been thinking of switching from my Sonography major to RN lately &was wondering how difficult are the actual nursing classes? I have completed almost all my pre-reqs except for medical terminology &a psychology class that I am currently taking. I have done good in my pre-reqs (mainly B's, 2 or 3 A's, and 2 C's) but am really worried if I can handle the program. I have heard people stressing about the nursing but they graduated. If I switch to RN, I will be getting my associate's degree in Nursing at a community college &then getting a BSN at a local university. Can any current RN students or RN's please give me an idea of how difficult the classes are? Any advice for to get through the program? From RN's already working in a hospital, how do you remember everything you learn in college or do you learn more hands on when you are hired? Thank you in advance for any advice! :))[View Answers]
2.9 GPA Psy switch to Int'l Relations Grad School?0teeka2012-11-03 13:20:40
UCLA 2008 psychology graduate with 2.9 GPA. Reason for low GPA - personal issues &just lost the heart for it. No International Relations (IR) academic or professional background - but found passion for it. Haven't taken GRE. Would like to attend Boston University among other schools. What are my chances? How high of a GRE score do I need to offset low GPA? From what I've read, people have said that one could take classes to increase GPA even after graduating - is that true? Would that be through extension schools, community colleges, accredited universities (even if the student is not a part of a program) - so just taking IR classes or actual post-bacc programs? As far as the Universities accepting post bacc classes - do they all do so or does it depend on the school? Advice on what I can do to be a more competitive candidate? If the GRE is taken by a prospective student more than once - do they take the highest score or averages it out?[View Answers]

Grad School Question?0Charish2012-11-03 12:03:45
Today was the first day in my abnormal psychology class and the teacher told us to raise our hand if we planned on going to grad school to become a doctor. Out of the class of about 70, i would say that about 60 people raised their hands. So about 85% of my class mates raised their hands. From what i understand, only about 4% of college undergrads go on to become doctors. What happens to all of those people who claim that they are going to be doctors? I've researched how many people even apply to schools that offer doctoral programs and only about 8% of the people in my class who said they are planning on becoming a doctor will ever even apply to a graduate school. I mean close to 90% of the class said they are planning on becoming a doctor but 92% of them will never even apply to a doctoral program. What happens to all of those people in between the time someone is an junior, saying they want to go to grad school, and the eight months later when they need to start applying?[View Answers]
Are you motivated by a fear of hating yourself?0Darius Miller2012-11-03 09:48:49
That is what motivates me and so far is been working. I can’t help feeling like a complete **** up and I've ****** up a lot of things in my life. I'm constantly tortured by a sense of failure. I feel like quitting all the time. It's this constant feeling of not having achieved enough. The desire to feel like i am not a loser drives me. I don't know if that's the healthiest thing—to be motivated by a fear of hating yourself. But it definitely helps. In a perfect world I would overcome the sense that I suck constantly. Emotionally I dwell on things forever. I'm an obsessive thinker. I obsess on things I've done wrong. Even worse than mistakes, I'll dwell on what I'm not doing at the moment and what my limitations are. So now I am 28 and have a job a car and my own place, but I am busy cuz I am currently going back to college to become a physical therapy assistant. My jobs OK but it a dead end job and it is nothing i am passion at about doing forever. Retail sucks and I do not like it at all so it was time to do something new. My job just does not pay well like $18 an hour will not feed a family. I have to apply to get into the physical therapy assistant program. They just do not let anyone in. there is 5 colleges that offer it and they each take 20 to 30 people a year. So i have to take thing serious like it a matter life and death that I get good grades. Failure is not an option I am not getting any younger. Core class I still need to take.

Hey, Does anyone know of good psychology colleges/universities that also offer at least a minor in dance.?0Sheliah2012-11-03 09:22:11
I plan on majoring in psychology but dance has always been a part of my life and I intend on keeping it that way. The problem so far is that all of the schools I've come across (that have a good psychology program) don't have a program in dance. Somewhere that offers both majors would be great.....but a minor in dance would be helpful too....I think a double major might be too ambitious anyway.

Considering art college after university?0Nanako2012-11-03 09:14:34
A bit of an odd question, but I'm currently a high school student who is contemplating having a career in animation and digital art, but I'd like to go to university and study psychology before switching to study art instead. My rationale for this is due to the fact that I want to have a backup plan, in case it gets difficult to find jobs in the creative industry. Would it be possible to switch into a post-secondary art program (I live in the Toronto area; so the ones I know of include OCAD, Sheridan, York, etc) after having studied for several years at university? I'm just not sure if I would be able to grab my art portfolio, and go "hey I'm interested in studying art now" and just enter an art program even though there are probably many high school applicants vying for the same position. Thanks. :)[View Answers]
Transfer??0kelsee2012-11-03 09:01:02
I recently graduated high school and am currently taking classes at a junior college. I'll be finishing my freshman year in December so I'm a little ahead of everyone. On top of that, I work 25+ hours a week. Anyway, I'd really like to transfer to an amazing school. In high school, I only had a 3.5 GPA. I played sports, worked etc too. I also only scored a 1750 on my SATs,mostly because I didn't study very much. I wasn't as concerned with college as I am right now. All of the sudden, I'm studying like crazy and getting straight A's. I'm very focused on schoolwork right now. I plan on getting a 4.0 both years I'm there as well as working and being more involved with school activities (clubs, groups, etc.) So my question is: what do you think my chances are of getting into a top school? I'd like to transfer into Stanford since they have a good psychology program, but I definitely don't think I'm good enough. Any suggestions? basically, I didn't 'apply myself', but I've learned my lesson[View Answers]
Should I be an anthropology major?0Marilyn2012-11-03 08:17:08
I am about to enter my sophomore year in college and I have been having difficulty choosing a major. I have so many interests and passions that I find it hard to know which path is the right one. Before college I was convinced I was either going to be a Physician Assistant or a Doctor and eventually was accepted to a 5 year Physician Assistant program where I would get my bachelors and masters. After one semester I realized I didn't want to be in the medical field. It wasn't because I couldn't handle it, in fact I did very well and my professors suggested i change to pre-med, but it was more that I didn't have a passion for it. Right now I'm taking math classes just to have something to fall back on because math comes easy to me, But I've always loved art and psychology and discussing meaning of life and relationships among people and cultures. I love travel and learning about different religions and the past and anything that makes me think and allows for intense discussion. I've been researching anthropology and sociology and feel that maybe that would be a good choice for me. I think that eventually I would like to get me Ph.D. and maybe teach. If anyone has any advice for me it would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.[View Answers]

I am having a major meltdown and contemplating suicide.?0remina2012-11-03 03:35:23
I am a 23 year old male. I started college wanting to go to medical school. I did poorly in undergrad and on my MCAT and settled for an acceptance to a PhD program. I am now here at the PhD program. I hate it here. It's only been 2 months. I am so miserable, I have lost like 40 lbs over the last two months. I don't know how else to describe it but I am miserable. I fortunately have a way out, but even that leads to problems. If I switch out of the PhD program into the masters program, I no longer have to do the thing that is stressing me. Problem is, I would end up spending two years, and some 35,000$ dollars to earn a masters degree in a field I don't want to work in. Molecular and Cellular Biology. I have two bachelors degrees in Biology and Psychology. It feels like everything I have done in college has been for degrees that offer work I don't want to do. Work that isn't even available because of the economy. I have no friends here at the school. My two friends in the program dropped out about a month ago, for the same reason I want out now. It is miserable here. Every day, I wake up, and have to do the "research" and I just get crushed. I have to drive 30 minutes to work everyday, and everyday, I contemplate driving my car into the barricade. I refuse to wear my seat belt anymore. Essentially, I spent so much time working on these bachelors degrees and I made a mistake of taking this PhD spot, and I am so miserable. I want to just drop out, but... if I do that, I fail all the classes. I might be able to get a leave of absence with permission from the psychologist (who I am already seeing for anxiety and hyperactivity). What's compounding everything, is I have no friends here. I feel so out of place, not like undergrad. I am working so hard right now, treading water, spending money and living in constant pain, to earn a degree (Masters degree in Molecular and Microbiology) that I can't foresee giving me ANY opportunities to work in a field I would like to. I have never contemplated suicide before, but this is just unbearable. I am not depressed, I just hate this so much. I feel like, I have no future. Everything I have done over the last 5 years, what I am doing now, and what I am probably going to be stuck with for the next year and a half, is for degrees that will only offer me jobs that I don't want to do.[View Answers]

Good Colleges in CO, OR, or TX?0alberto2012-11-03 03:03:22
I guess I just need some schools to look into. Preferably one with a good program that involves either children, psychology, or education [like teaching, of course]. I've searched far and wide, and those are the states I'm looking into, but I guess I don't know where to start. A good sense of community is also a plus. I don't really care if it has sports or greek stuff...but I'd need it to be somewhere near a decent sized city. Hopefully someone here can give me a few good names without listing every college in Texas, because that won't help me out much.[View Answers]
What's your opinion on how I feel about what I've been going through? &may you please not insult me?0shon2012-11-03 02:17:28
I feel so bad that it's partially complete-not even halfway. The only reason why I didn't drop this course is because I'm classified as a Grad Student, even though I'm in the Grad Prep program, &I had to keep my 9 hrs. for Financial Aid purposes. I couldn't afford to drop &pay the money back. All I can say is that this semester wasn't for me, &I've been out of college for almost a year. The only reason why I wanted to try Grad School is to strengthen my skills as a Spanish major, &I don't even think I'll make it to Grad School, even if I passed your class with an A. Writing papers is one of my weaknesses, even though I have to try to overcome that fear. &plus, I didn't get to get my disability accommodations because my doctor &case manager keep giving me the runaround with the paperwork to try to get my accommodations, &plus, a lot of bad stuff has happened to me this summer that I can't emotionally deal with. With the Grad Prep program with the Toulouse School of Graduate Studies, they instructed me to take NON-Spanish courses of 15 hrs. with NO prerequisites &make A's &B's in them. &I feel like I've been given the runaround for that because the Spanish Dept. for Grad School is telling me that I need to have 15 hrs. of ONLY Spanish &Straight A's. So now I'm confused. I guess I did poorly in those Psychology courses because I've never before taken upper level PSYCH courses, &I've never taken a RHAB course, either. This is my 1st semester @ UNT. I think I probably can do better next semester. &by this course having 1 big paper &no tests for the summer, that shocked me. I guess 2 mistakes I made were that I was naively thinking that because this class had no prerequisites, it was supposed to be an "easy A" &the other mistake I made was that I let my depression from other problems get the best of me. Yeah, I know I had ALL semester to do this paper, but I think that what happened with my family problems, home &financial situation played a HUGE part in me feeling depressed. I've tried to seek tutoring, but when I every time I called, nobody answered. &I had a counseling appt. @ the Psychology clinic here on campus for the 1st time yesterday, but I had to cancel the appointment because for the past 2 weeks, I've been depressed enough to not be able to move &been having stomach pains &nausea because of my anxiety. The doctor @ MHMR increased my medicine, but I can't start the increased dosage yet because of insurance purposes. I have to wait until my pills are gone. It may seem like I didn't try or put enough effort, but I know this is the best I could do, being under this pressure. Under less stressful conditions, yes, I could've done better. Shoot! I wonder if I need to be mentally hospitalized for a while. I'm trying not to let it get to that point. I know I shouldn't blame myself for my disability-related issues, but I feel like such a TOTAL loser! I shouldn't feel that way about circumstances beyond my control. I'm about to cry right now because I feel like I did something wrong. &yes, you can say I'm disabled because my mental disorders, like Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Tourette's Syndrome, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, &Major Depressive Disorder's symptoms get in the way of my everyday functioning. Because of this, I can't even get a job. But I don't see how I can't keep a job, but other people with mental illnesses can lead productive lives. I should be able to, as well. In the workforce, I always get discriminated against &no one wants to hire me, or my supervisor always wants to fire me because of my symptoms. But my depression does cause poor performance. I wish I could be happier. People do everything in their power to try to make my life HELL &try to stop me from trying to succeed. My family has done a great job of it. I'm the only person in the family with a college degree, but what good is it to have a degree in Spanish ¬ be fluent? That's why I decided to go back to school. &I didn't know until the last semester of my undergrad career that my professors told me that the University of New Orleans's Spanish undergrad program is not enough to make us fluent in the language. But I guess UNT's program won't either since they have the same course content-Ancient Literature. That won't do me any good since I want to be a translator &interpreter. But it'll help refresh my memory. Sorry for talking too much. &thanks for understanding &listening. --------------------------------------…[View Answers]
